Government move on FCRA licence to affect social work: Oxfam | India News

NEW DELHI: Oxfam India said the government’s decision to refuse renewal of Foreign Contribution Regulation Act (FCRA) registration will severely affect the organisation’s ongoing humanitarian and social work in 16 states across the country.
This includes setting up of oxygen plants, providing lifesaving medical and diagnostic equipment such as oxygen cylinders and ventilators and delivery of food to the most vulnerable communities during the Covid-19 pandemic, it said in a statement. According to the list released by the ministry of home affairs, Oxfam India’s FCRA registration renewal request was denied which means that the organisation would not be able to receive foreign funds for any of its work in India from January 1.
